1 Dear Rising Sophomores, Before entering school in August, every Pre-IB 10 student will read two books and prepare two required assignments over the summer. Your assignment will be due on the second day of school. BOTH BOOKS ARE REQUIRED READING: 1.) The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger 2.) Night by Elie Wiesel Please make sure you allow the proper amount of time to read BOTH books during the summer. It is important to read both books so that you will have a solid background for the work we will be completing during the 1 st Marking Period. I d like you to purchase your own books so that you can write margin notes and highlight the vocabulary as you read. These notes will help prepare you for the assignments that we will complete during the fall. In addition to reading, you will have two assignments to complete: the dialectical journal and the novel. Both assignments must be typed and saved as separate documents on the student s computer. If you have any questions over the summer please feel free to me at Enjoy your Summer Reading! I look forward to working with you next year! Your Pre IB 10 Teacher, Mrs. Leayne C. Dempsey

2 SUMMER READING ASSIGNMENTS ASSIGNMENT #1: Reviewing terms from ninth grade... Night by Elie Wiesel: THE DIALECTICAL JOURNAL You will be creating a dialectical journal in a composition book. All entries must be typed and then pasted into your composition book. You will be using the composition book throughout the school year. Complete directions for the dialectical journal are on the next page. A dialectical journal is a way of learning to interact with your text, a way of making reading more personal and immediate. DIALECTIC means the art or practice of arriving at the truth by the exchange of ideas. The purpose of this journal is to allow you to have a conversation with the text that will deepen your understanding of its contents. For each of the eleven literary elements listed below, you will create one dialectical journal entry. In the end, you will have 10 dialectical journal entries in all for Night. Each entry consists of a quotation from the text (include author and page number, MLA style, and your commentary on this entry.) Each entry/commentary should focus on a literary technique or element. For each quote you must do three things: 1. Respond to the quote 2. Analyze the Quote 3. Evaluate Write one dialectical journal entry for each term: Point of View Simile Metaphor Theme Foreshadowing Internal Conflict (Man vs. Himself) External Conflict (Man vs. Man or Man vs. Society) Diction Tone Personification Title See the example ON THE NEXT PAGE to know exactly how to set up your journals. Your journals should be neatly TYPED. Your dialectical journal entries will prove useful as a reference of materials for in-class assignments.

3 Sample Dialectical Journal: Night Source Material (Provide a direct quotation or paraphrase and a parenthetical citation) (What are you analyzing?) Simile The snow was like a carpet, very gentle, very warm (83). Page # 83 Respond, Analyze, and Evaluate (Why do you find this passage interesting or important?) I can picture the men standing in the concentration camp, watching the snow blanket the ground. It is silent there. The snow-covered ground is smooth and soft. RESPOND Wiesel describes the snow as being gentle and warm. This comparison is not what one would expect. Standing barefoot in the snow would be very painful. The cold would cut deep into one s feet. So why does he say it is warm? Maybe his feet are frozen, numb to the pain. Perhaps the snow provides insulation from night s bitter cold. ANALYZE This comparison creates a sense of peace, a moment without terror and fear. It is as if he is home again, safe and warm. EVALUATE 111 words (What are you analyzing?) Personification/ Internal Conflict Death wrapped itself around me till I was stifled. It stuck to me. I felt that I could touch it. The idea of dying, of no longer being, began to fascinate me. Not to exist any longer (82). 82 This is a sad moment for Elie. He has fought to survive, but cannot fight any longer. I can t imagine being fourteen and wanting to die. I can t imagine being fourteen and losing my family, my dignity, my soul. What a tragedy. RESPOND In this passage, Wiesel personifies death to show the control it has over those who are suffering in the camps. In this case, Death silences Elie, overpowering his will and subduing his hope of survival. Elie is conflicted. He wants to survive. He wants to take care of his father. But he doesn t know how much more he can take. ANALYZE This is important because we see that Elie has reached a breaking point. Death has come for him so many times but has failed. This time, however, Elie is too tired to run, too tired to fight. He has had enough. Death is offering a gift an escape from this hellish existence. EVALUATE 153 words

4 Assessment: Your dialectical journal will be assessed on 3 main categories: Evidence of Reading: o Demonstrates reading comprehension o Contains accurate details o Makes connections between significant moments, lines, plot details, Textual Analysis: o Show, don t tell o demonstrate how the words/phrases/ideas within selected quotes express significance o Textual evidence (quote) is limited to just the words necessary for Depth: o Journal contains a sufficient selection of (1 quote per term) o Quotes come from a broad selection of themes, o Written response thoroughly demonstrates the significance of the quote You grade will be determined by the following rubric: Eviden ce of reading Textual Depth Exemp lary Proficient Does not meet standard Demonstrates strong Demonstrates reading Fails to demonstrate reading comprehension comprehension reading comprehension Details are accurate; no Significant details are Contains erroneous erroneous information accurate information OR lack of Identifies obvious and Identifies obvious sufficient details subtle connections connections between Fails to make between significant significant connections between scenes/lines/plot points, scenes/lines/plot points, significant moments Analysis clearly shows rather than tells Explores how the words/ideas contained within selected quotes express significance Textual evidence is focused to exactly the words necessary for Broad selection of textual evidence Covers a wide variety of Response demonstrates thorough, perception, and original thought Analysis attempts to show, not tell Able to express significance of selected quotes Textual evidence matches the ideas contained in Adequate selection of Covers multiple of Response adequately analyzes the significance of the quote Analysis does not show (i.e.: does not rely on ) Fails to adequately express significance of selected quotes Ideas in not directly connected to Insufficient selection of Fails to cover a variety of Response lacks (i.e.: summary, questions, predictions, ) and/or original thought

5 ASSIGNMENT #2 Anticipating work for tenth grade... The Catcher in the Rye: THE NOVEL ANALYSIS Type a novel for The Catcher in the Rye. These should be TYPED notes that you paste into your composition book. This will prepare you for our in class discussions. THIS IS NOT AN ESSAY. You may use short paragraphs, bullet points, Complete each section in a way that you will understand the notes on your own. BE DETAILED. I AM NOT CONCERNED WITH RIGHT ANSWERS. I AM CONCERNED WITH EACH OF YOUR INDIVIDUAL THOUGHTS. COPYING WORK FROM ONLINE SOURCES OR ANOTHER CLASSMATE IS CONSIDERED PLAGIARISM AND WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. Your should consist of the following components: Biographical Sketch: Write a short biographical sketch of the author and his times. In particular, note items that are relevant to our understanding of the text. Be sure to give the names of all sources that you use! Do NOT copy and paste. Title: Write and highlight the title and explain its significance. Setting: Describe and explain the significance of the various settings of the text. Include references to such significant items as time period, places, and weather. Your response here should NOT be general. Narrative Structure and Style: For a novel, describe the narrator and his style. Also, describe the structure of the book: How many chapters are there? Are there sections or parts? For a play, discuss the use of stage directions, describe the structure of the text (acts, scenes), and describe the type of play it is (comedy, tragedy). Copy and cite at least 2 examples of the narrative style, and comment on those examples. Characters: Identify each major and minor character and provide a description and for each. What purpose does each character serve within the text? Plot: Provide a 20 bullet point summary of the major events of the book. Symbols: Identify 5 of the major symbols used in the text, and explain the significance of each. Why is the author using them? Remember: symbols should be physical objects that represent something nonphysical (an idea or feeling). Quotations: Select 5 quotes that you believe characterize the book; quotes that you think define the message of the book. Copy and cite each quote. (MLA FORMAT) ** Please be prepared to submit your novel notes to turnitin.com at the beginning of the school year. **
